PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY ELECTION
March 10, 2020
The 2020 Presidential Primary is designated a "closed primary," just as it was in 2012 and 2016. Michigan Election Law, requires voters wishing to participate in the March 10 Election to choose a Democratic, Republican, or no-Presidential Primary (local issues only, when applicable) ballot when voting absentee or at the polls on Election Day. While a voter must select a specific party ballot, there is no political party registration in Michigan's voter registration system. However, the voter's ballot selection will be public information for the 22 months following the election.
•The polls open at 7:00 AM and close at 8:00 PM on election day.
•Voters wishing to receive an absentee ballot in the mail must sign an application and submit to the Clerk. To receive a ballot in person, voters need to sign the application and show photo ID or affidavit.
•Absentee ballots must be returned to the Clerk's office by 8:00 pm on election day.
•The Clerk's office will be open on Saturday, March 7, 2020 from 9:00 AM- 5:00 PM for those wishing to obtain an absentee ballot.
